Winter wheels and tyres
« on: September 13, 2017, 08:24:24 PM »
Hi

New to the forum - but used to BMWs with a 330d and 120d in the family.

Collecting new F25 X3 20d Sport next week for current wife.  I am a fan of winter tyres - so looking for suggestions on where to get 17 or 18 inch wheels from - happy for used ideally with TPMS.

I have bought from "Mrwinterwheels" before - so will be looking there if I cannot get a decent used set.

I am assuming that the 17 inch wheel will just look silly on the car? 

Any recommendations appreciated!

Many thanks

Have a look at alloy wheels direct to see what the fitments/styles available are.  Then you'll know what to hunt for.

I think you will need to code the TPMS transponders to the car.

Realoem is another site to check - BMW parts database.

Hi

funnily enough I was just about to post to ask about winter wheels and tyres my self. Ive a set for my old 2007 x3.

Im thinking about a newer F25 35d. Ive just checked the realome website and I cant use the current wheels I have with a 35d but I didnt think I could.  Not sure if they would work with the 2.0 d.  They are the double spoke 112 pattern 8Jx17 ET:46 with 235/55 R17 99h tyres (Ill check this to be sure)

Looking at the realome for the F25 2.0d I think they do a 8Jx17 ET:43 for the F25 which is similar.

Ill make my mind up re the new car shortly, if I do and your ok with 17s then your welcome to try them on before I pop them on ebay:-)

Cheers

Andrew
